The Avalon team shares a sense of commitment to a company trailblazing its way through the IT industry and leading them to vote the company as one of the best places to work.

We recognize this and have worked hard to establish an environment that rewards our employees not just financially, but also in ways that are gratifying beyond what monetary compensation can provide; such as adherence to a work/life balance, attention to training & career goals of our people, and community service involvement.
